One of the most refined premium luxury auto brands in the world. Maybach have a long and storied history of building uber expensive, captivating luxury cars.

The Mercedes-Benz star surmounts the hood in the classic way, while the fine, vertical chrome struts of the Maybach radiator grille create a pinstripe effect. Effective chrome highlights around the side windows, and the chrome inserts in the side sill panels, lend dignity and elegance to the profile.   As a special, Maybach-specific feature, two-tone paintwork is available in eight different, elegant colour combinations.

Optionally available, the fixed centre console transforms the car into a spacious four-seater whose rear is just as suitable for working as for relaxing.
